Can be painful and annoying. An ingrowing hair is when the hair grows backwards and not upwards out the follicle like most hairs. This can appear as a small inflamed bump on the skins surface.

Ingrowing hairs can be caused by shaving or waxing the hair, with women this is most common on the bikini line and men on the neck area.

Future Skin offer several treatments to help unwanted ingrowers.

Laser hair removal to remove unwanted hair, this is the best effective form of method to eliminate the cause itself of having hair. Unlike other forms of hair removal laser destroy the hair at the base of the follicle which will shred naturally after treatment, this method is not distorting the follicle which is one of the main causes of ingrowing hairs.

Exfoliating treatments, removing excess dead skin on the surface to encourage the hair to grow out the follicle, dead skin can clog the follicle causing the hair to grow backwards. Skin peels, microdermabrasion and use of salicylic base products to help straighten the hair.
